    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Qualcomm really values their engineers and tries to keep them happy. Even when upper management makes decisions that might not be the best for the engineers, the lower managers will do their best to argue for the engineers.

    Cons

    Company is growing and slowly turning into another corporate behemoth with all the things that come along with that - less care for individual employees, more focus on profits and less on products, and slower reactions to the market or to changing workplace conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Qualcomm has grown because of their ability to attract good engineers. Don't lose that for the sake of quarterly profits.

    I applied online and got a call from the hiring manager in some days about a phone screen for 45 minutes. He scheduled a time and gave me a call. Questions were based on resume and a coding question.
